Prolific vs. Writing Software

Writing Software Examples

Apps, Games, Software, Social Media

Workspaces, Prompts, Brainstorming

Productivity, Project Management

Asana, Instagram, Pinterest, Wunderlist, ToDoist, ListApp, Evernote

Writing Software Pros & Cons

Strong in novelty & digital experience

Low price or free

Overwhelming features & notifications

Consumes more time than it saves

All inspiration & organization, no action

Most of the tools designed to enhance one’s personal productivity seem to exacerbate the very anxieties they were meant to allay. The better you get at managing time, the less of it you feel that you have.

Prolific vs. Writing Systems

Writing Systems Examples

Courses, Resources & Groups

GTD, Artist's Way, Pomodoro, Behance, Kanban, 4hr Workeweek, Creative Mornings

Writing Systems Pros & Cons

High in structure

Robust offering of resources

Cumbersome, complicated & controlling

Either too clinical or too artsy

Propaganda for selling other products

An explosion in technology aimed at helping people manage their time and tasks may actually be making it harder. When you open up a browser window, there are twenty tabs staring at you with stuff you need to get done, fighting for your attention.

Prolific vs. Services

Writing Services Examples

Consultants, Coaches, Gurus

Business Consultants, Creativity & Life

Coaches, Paid Mentors

Action Coach, International Coaches Federation, Life Coach Associations, Great Game of Business

Writing Services Pros & Cons

Strong accountability

Effective in habit change

Expensive and labor intensive

One size fits all solution after the fact

Can create external dependency

My biggest issue with most coaching programs is they try to make you something you’re not. And you spend a lot of your time trying to put into practice what the coach makes you aware of.
